Gor Mahia will kick off their 2018 CECAFA club cup on July 1 against Rwandese side Rayon Sport, the same team they are playing in th3 2018 CAF Confederations cup. The other teams in group B are Lydia Ludic of Burundi and Ports of Djibouti.
On paper it looks like an easy group. But with the backlog of fixtures, one wonders how much petrol Gor Mahia players have left in the tank. This will especially affect the defence where Gor Mahia lack depth. That is unless Kogalo can re-inforce their side sufficiently during the June transfer season.
The CECAFA club cup is a tournament that many Kogalo fans would really like to win given that it has been 33 years since Kogalo lifted the trophy. This especially applies to those fans who are familiar with the good old days when Kogalo was a force in this tournament.
